Anticipation is a basic Defence ability. When activated the player reduces damage taken by 10% and gains immunity against stuns for 10 seconds. This does not work on Thieving stuns.

Anticipation will not reduce damage over time or stuns and binds if it is activated after the effect has started.

Anticipation will prevent Araxxor and Araxxi from dragging the player towards them with their swipe attack and will reduce the number of clicks needed to escape the cocoon attack.

The Clear Headed perk will lengthen Anticipation's duration by 2 ticks (1.2s) per rank but remove its damage reducing effect. The Reflexes perk will halve its duration and cooldown.
